GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. In accordance with reference (a), Marine Corps Installations Command (MCICOM) has established an Annual Assessment Program to evaluate Installation Energy Program performance. The redesigned USMC Annual Energy and Water Management Report (AEWMR) was formalized by reference (b) beginning with the FY18 reporting period. The results of the AEWMR are used to assess each installation’s ability to provide reliable, resilient and efficient energy and water to supported missions and to inform the Secretary of the Navy’s (SECNAV) Energy Excellence Awards Program. The highest achieving submissions from the Large (greater than 500 MBTU energy consumption) and the Small (less than 500 MBTU) Installation Categories were nominated for SECNAV consideration.
2. Per reference (c), SECNAV has announced the following Marine Corps installations as 2019 SECNAV Energy Excellence Award winners:
A. Category and Winner
A.1. Installation (Large): MCB Camp Lejeune
A.2. Installation (Small): MCLB Albany
3. This year's SECNAV award winners and the new AEWMR serve as the foundation for evolving the MCICOM Energy Program to focus on providing energy security planning for mission assurance, continuity of operations, and sustainment of critical installation services. This comprehensive review required a deep dive into energy generation assets, long-range planning efforts, and coordination with mission owners in addition to traditional energy project execution and conservation efforts. Based on their AEWMR submissions, installations were graded against nine program management categories and nine annual performance criteria in order to qualify for either Blue, Gold, or Platinum achievement levels carrying on the tradition from previous SECNAV Energy Awards Programs.
4. The Platinum level indicates the highest standards in energy security program management and exceptional performance during the reporting period. The Gold level indicates outstanding energy security program management and excellent performance during the reporting period. The Blue level indicates the minimum standard for energy security program management and adequate performance to ensure USMC installations can continue to provide the power our missions need to remain resilient during periods of disruption from commercial energy supplies.
5. With these new standards in mind, MCICOM would like to recognize the following commands for their hard-won achievements in energy security program management based on FY18 performance:
A. Platinum Achievement Level
A.1. MCB Camp Lejeune
A.2. MCLB Albany
A.3. MCSF Blount Island
A.4. MCAS Miramar
A.5. MCRD Parris Island
A.6. MCAS Yuma
B. Gold Achievement Level
B.1. MCLB Barstow
B.2. MCAS Beaufort
B.3. MCAGCC 29 Palms
C. Blue Achievement Level: MCB Hawaii
6. Congratulations again to MCB Camp Lejeune, MCLB Albany, and all installations who met the Platinum, Gold, and Blue standards for leading the way in energy security planning, collaboration, project execution and program management. Identifying critical energy requirements and mitigating unacceptable risks to Marine Corps installations requires integrated planning, coordination, and targeted investments in reliable, resilient, and efficient solutions. Increasing energy security and creating installation resilience is a high priority for MCICOM, and I look forward to all your future accomplishments in support of this vision.
